iOS 5 jailbreak released: Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1



ios5-redsn0w

MuscleNerd recently Tweeted that iOS 5 beta 1 jailbreak is already available. DevTeam released Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1.

For now the jailbreak is tethered (you have to run redsn0w each time you reboot) and available for Mac OS X only. It will not activate your device, so you need have registered UDID. iPhone 3GS users with 06.15 baseband: redsn0w will get you past the iTunes restore error. This redsn0w will probably work on future versions of iOS 5.

Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 works with iOS 5 b1 on iPhone 4 (GSM / CDMA), iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1.

This is mostely for developers of Cydia apps. Most tweaks and Cydia applications do not work on iOS 5.

You can download Redsn0w 0.9.8 b1 here.

Download links for iOS 5.0 beta 1 and iTunes 10.5 beta



iOS_5

Apple recently released iOS 5 beta and iTunes 10.5 beta. It is available only for Apple registered developers. But you can try it too. Remember that you do it at your own risk. Below you will find iOS 5 download links for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3G, iPod Touch 4G, iPad 1, iPad 2, Apple TV 2G and download links to iTunes 10.5 Mac and Windows.

Keep in mind that your iDevice will need to be activated, your UUID needs to be registered in Apple. Installing iOS beta on a non-activated device will render it useless. If you need help with registering UUID - write us, we will try to help..

Remember that currently there is no jailbreak for iOS 5 released. UPDATE: If you need a jailbreak - download it here.

(!) You will probably not be able to restore back to 4.х. UPDATE: how to go back to 4.3.3.

You can download iOS 5 beta 2 here.

iOS 5 is already jailbroken



ios5-jail-3 ios5-jail-2

MuscleNerd has announced in Twitter that iOS 5 has been successfully jailbroken using old good LimeRa1n exploit. Cydia and SSH is working without any problems.

iOS5 jailbroken on ipt4g: http://is.gd/7GxIcK http://is.gd/BwPvfh via limera1n + tethered boot..not too many surprises :)

Cydia works fine too from quick testing (I installed SSH) http://is.gd/oADWEo

It is currently tethered, that means jailbreak is gone after reboot. Hopefully i0n1c will be able to port his untether to iOS 5. Anyway great news for all jailbreakers!

samsungtab101

According to The Wall St. Journal report, which in turn refers to Asian CLSA’s research note, Apple is working on an LTE-iPad for the holiday shopping season.

“While most vendors appear fixated on matching the specs and features of iPad2, our checks suggest Apple will release iPad3 in time for the holiday season, sporting a better display and LTE capabilities.”

AT&T’s LTE network is going to roll out later this year, while users of Verizon can already enjoy its amazing download speeds around the country.

On 2nd of June thinner and lighter Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was announced. The company announced it will support fast Verizon’s network in the coming weeks.

The Wall St. Journal also reported iPhone won’t get LTE support this year.

Samsung’s Lawyers Ask Apple To See iPhone 5 and iPad 3



samsung suit

Samsung’s lawyers have asked Apple to hand over “final, commercial versions” of the next-generation iPhone and iPad and the retail packaging design of the devices. The company wants to evaluate if their future products, like the Droid Charge and the Galaxy Tab 10.1, could have similar features with them. This countersuit was filed after Samsung was asked to hand over Apple its prototypes of the Droid Charge, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Infuse 4G and Galaxy S 2. In order to avoid future confusion with the Apple’s products, Samsung is asking the court to apply the same procedure that granted Apple’s lawyers access to Samsung’s upcoming products.

FCC launched investigation of AT&T’s merger with T-Mobile



attlogo

As you may know, in March  Deutsche Telekom reported its intention to acquire the rival carrier, T-Mobile, for AT&T, its subsidiary company. The estimated price of the deal amounts $39 billion. The fact has recently attracted attention of federal regulators, as in case of successful transaction AT&T will become the leader in the field of wireless carriers, and the number of its customers will reach about 130 million people.

The FCC is eager to find out "how AT&T's wireless spectrum is being used, the nature of its overall network and why it believed it needed T-Mobile's spectrum to meet its goals for 4G", reported MacNN this Friday. Officials also investigate whether AT&T considered solutions alternative to acquiring T-Mobile, and what is the scope of those solutions.

Samsung Will Hand Over Prototypes of Phones and Tablets to Apple



samsung

The legal battle between Apple and Samsung — sued for allegedly copying the “look and feel” of the iPhone and iOS with its Galaxy devices — it’s far from over. Apple  is now asking Samsung to hand over prototypes of unreleased phones and tablets for legal scrutiny. With the federal court ruling that Samsung will have to send these units to Apple’s legal team, Samsung is being forced to send the unreleased Droid Charge, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 to Apple, though the other two devices mentioned, the Infuse 4G and Galaxy S 2, have already been released publicly in the United Kingdom and United States, respectively.
